S4 / S6 Modules

S6 can be completely customized with up to 46 total modules, including faders, knobs, high-res displays, and other options. See what’s available below.

Master Touch Module - The Control Surface Engine

All S6 surfaces include the Master Touch Module (MTM), which provides touchscreen access and control. It features a tilting 12.1-inch multipoint touchscreen, eight adjacent rotary encoders, and dedicated knobs and keys, providing touch and tactile control of plugins, monitoring, soft keys, and more. A single MTM supports up to 64 faders. To handle large-scale post-production mixes, you can install up to three MTMs to support a 3-operator workflow.

Master Modules - Command Central

Master modules are the central hubs of your S6 surface. The S6 Automation Module complements the Master Touch Module, providing controls for transport, automation, and more. The other two are options to accelerate surround and post workflows.

Automation Module

Navigate and automate projects with ease. The Automation Module is an optional add-on, though you’ll probably want one. It features a full transport control section, including a shuttle/jog wheel. It also offers a focus fader, automation control, color shortcut displays and switches, a numeric keypad, and more for writing automation and navigating projects.

Joystick Module

Get the control you need to mix surround sound projects. This option offers dual touch-sensitive joysticks, 3.2-inch TFT and OLED displays, two LED top-lit encoders, 16 panning mode switches with color LEDs, and other switches to position sound, control divergence, and more. Plus, it can be used to control any other knob parameter on S6 to create a wide range of effects.

Post Module

Complete post projects faster. With this sound mixing/monitoring option, you can switch between recorded tracks/stems and their inputs and punch into record. It offers two rows of 10 PEC/DIRECT paddles, each with solo and mute buttons and an OLED to view track/stem names. Spill stems onto adjacent paddles for individual control. Create Soft Keys to perform tasks instantly. Switch between monitors and dim, cut, or fold down your mix. And with VCA support on the paddles, you can control over 200 tracks with ease.

Channel Modules - The Controls You Need

Channel modules provide the control and feedback elements you need to create your mix—from faders and knobs, to processing and metering. All modules feature reliable, high-speed Ethernet connectivity for easy set-up.
